Pre-order Kosher-for-Passover Style Knishes!

Passover is perhaps my favorite holidays for two reasons: it centers around getting family from far and wide together, AND it gets said families around a big table o' FOOD! Food is so codified in the Passover tradition that it ain't Passover unless there is a dinner involved, with a Seder plate full of symbolic foods that relate to the story being told.

Now I'm not saying that a knish can replace the lamb shank or the egg on your seder plate (though a series of hard boiled egg knishes, charoset knishes etc etc might be a future Passover project), but it definitely belongs at the table. What would go better with your matzoh ball soup than a nice spinach knish? Perhaps a potato knish to help down that blob of jellied gefilte? So we're proud to announce:
Knishery NYC is baking 3 kinds of knishes for Passover this season! There are three kinds on offer:
  • Traditional Potato & Onion
  • Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash
  • Spinach & Roasted Garlic
All three will be made with a specially formulated dough that uses kosher for Passover flour. NOTE: Though all the ingredients in these knishes will be kosher for Passover & pareve & and kept separate from all trief foods, they will NOT be cooked in a kosher kitchen or hechshered by a rabbi.We just don't have the resources for that....yet!

Knishes are vegetarian. They are NOT vegan (eggs) or gluten free (wheat). Depending on availability at time of baking, 50% or more of the ingredients will be organic.
Mix and match any three kinds in your order in any quantity. Place your order by Sunday, April 1st, and you will be able to either pick them up on Thursday, April 5th, between 7am to 2:30pm, on the Lower East Side or have them delivered to your door that afternoon and evening.*
  • 1-9 knishes: $3.50 each + tax
  • 10-19 knishes $3 each + tax
  • 20+ knishes: $2.50 each + tax
Cash only at point of pick up/delivery. They will arrive cold, and will hold up in the refrigerator quite well for up to a week. [Reheat in oven at 325 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.] If travelling more than 3 hours without refrigeration, freezing is strongly recommended.

To order, email knisherynyc(at); you will receive a confirmation email. We have limited capacity; orders placed will be filled first come, first serve.
*Delivery zone limited to anywhere in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. Deliveries to be made via the knisher's own cargo bicycle. So here is your chance to meet KnisheryNYC in 3-D! Rough delivery times assigned a few days before delivery. In case of scheduling issues, limited deliveries can be made on Wednesday and early Friday morning. No extra charge for delivery. So be nice, not a nudgenik!
